my wife is working in an office that is subcontracting alot of debris pickup around here in south east louisiana. what i'm lookin for help in is this. each truck that picks up debris has a sepecific number assigned to it. and each subcontractor has 10-15 truck and they have about 250 subs. i need a macro that will automatically enter the subs name when the truck number is entered.

if someone could just show me how to get started with this that would be great. i am fairly familiar with computer i just have never used excell or made a macro.

any help would be great.

thanks alot.

my email is bspn33 at gmail.com

Hello bspn2

Excel's Vlookup formula will do this for you.
Just create a table using 2 columns , ColA being the truck numbers and collumn B being the Names. Then use the Vlookup formula to reference this table.

=VLOOKUP(A28,Sheet2!A:B,2,FALSE)

In this example the Truck number just typed is in A28 and the lookup table is on Sheet2 :wink:
